international live from moscow with the twenty four hours a day. police used tear gas and buttons to disperse anti-government protests in the ukrainian capital overnights people have been out on the streets for a week now angry with the president's decision to reject an integration deal with the. during the week e of central square was the stage of the mass protest of those supporting your integration in opposing president acknowledges decision not to sign the euro association deal in vilnius it is no longer the case right police is not controlling the area during the night several hundred policemen came here and dispersed the crowd and eyewitnesses say that the dispersal was rather rather violent more than thirty people were arrested and more than forty had to be hospitalized with different injuries the right police cordoned off the area not
letting anyone inside the square and while the opposition is still contemplating the next move people are literally enraged with what happened this night know what he actually expected that this rally would be dispersed especially considering that for the last three or four days it was very very peaceful and no clashes no violence was reported the fact is that many grayness thousands tens of thousands fact have been protesting against russia's decision i talked to some of them and i realize that not all of them were actually aware of what they were protesting against let's have a look at my report. it's italy. greece. spain . portugal. and ukraine similar picture looks are deceiving one number of european countries has been protesting against brussels policy ukraine is probably the only one where people are taking to the streets in tens of thousands to support the idea of your
integration or yes we deserve to be in europe and i should use the deal would have allowed us to get better education in europe but this was not about being in the e.u. joining the union was not even on the table the two hundred page blueprint of the agreement never said anything about a visa free regime where he isn't about that my wife can go to poland and buy a lot of food for just ten her even though which is just over a dollar. that's twice as much as i can buy here four hundred greville but the government was concerned that ukraine's domestic products would be swarmed by cheaper e.q. goods the worst case scenario could have been factory closures and a catastrophe unemployment rate and brussels was offering no compensation for any potential economic losses despite that ukraine's leadership has hinted a deal may still materialize in march next year that would mean a longer winter on the streets for the angry crowds who are refusing to go home they want the president's head before they do alexy russia city r.t.
reporting from key if in ukraine. protesters say ukraine's leadership ruined hopes for a better future by rejecting the e.u. deal but the government says there were economic dangers to making a hasty agreement kiev says it will review the deal next year as a tease and he said he said now paul scott's takes a look at what went wrong this time. a moment of un paralleled access to the ukrainian president viktor young a cold which comes face to face with e.u. leaders for the first time since stalling on an historic trade deal the whole thing caught on camera. but. it's clear that he has decision to hold proceedings has rankled e.u.
leaders following years of negotiations the e.u. senses outside influence we have to set aside short term political calculations. and we may not give in to external pressure not the least from russia. has the financial deal on offer isn't large enough to prevent damage to ukraine's flailing economy of course neither ukrainian businesses nor the government have this amount of money or will have any time soon that's why ukraine is not ready to take responsibilities he is not capable of fulfilling yet oh so where does this leave the situation ukraine's proposals for trilateral talks with russia were rejected by the e.u. or brussels finances may not allow them to increase the offer to kiev look at the european union massive run column employment throughout the course of the entire union they have a euro currency project which is a fiasco realistically the only thing the european union can try to do is keep
blame storming anybody russia who cares because the european union is ultimately falling apart at the scenes so the e.u. departs vilnius contemplating what might have been despite courting president they simply seemed unable to offer him a deal that was tempting enough scots r.t. vilnius lithuania it's going to be a complicated balancing act for ukraine's president between russia and the e.u. over the coming year and that's the opinion of chris we've seen a partner moscow based consulting firm marco advisory. brushes of a stronger financial position to offer a better deal to ukraine in that time period my assumption is that president yet a covert will try to avoid having to make a definitive decision either way until after the february fifteenth elections if he were to come out today and say we are definitely moving closer to russia that would
inflame the political situation and would lead to a very difficult kind of situation for the next twelve months on the other hand of course he can say or as he's already said you know we're moving to the european union away from russia so my guess is he'll try to pave all sides over the next winter probably over the next twelve months until after the next election and see what he can extract from both sides in the meantime. ukraine's or not to strengthen trade with the e.u. comes amid criticism that the block has lost direction alternative right wing groups across the continent are fighting against what they see as liberalism and want to forge a new sense of identity well we spoke to one political activist who's taking part in the we are the youth conference and he believes that young people in particular are being forgotten by the e.u. elite. it's a league research spain and portugal finding
a job is not that easy these days so of course people go looking specially young people go looking and searching for solutions and i think that there are some movements that can give these solutions to the problems of today that the capitalist and liberal system isc have cost the government over the european union that day totally don't care about the jobs of young people so we can see that people are looking for alternatives we can not say that it's a fact a nationalist revolution we can just say that it's very logical thing to happen it's a logical thing when people are left behind as they start to organize themselves and if they start to think. the cia turned to an unlikely source of talent according to media reports it's been suggested that the beginning of america's war on terror guantanamo bay prisoners were turned into spies double agents were promised freedom and safety and sent home with pockets of cash in exchange for
providing the u.s. with intelligence from abroad the process of recruitment and training was apparently carried out in secret cottages not far from the detention camp designed to feel more like hotel rooms than prison cells dozens of inmates were reportedly offered a job while only a handful agreed former pentagon security analyst michael maloof explains why. any exposure at any time like this of any secret program if there is one is always damaging. the question then is what is the relevance you send these guys back what tangible basis do you have and in the follow up and actually recruiting and i think that's a serious question but to even have a revelation that such a program might even exist it could be very damaging to these individuals and i doubt that those who are in guantanamo now would really be able to go back without some suspicion being cast upon them in guantanamo the more guilty you are the more
chance you have of being used as a double agent that's the claim of colonel morris davis he's a former guantanamo chief prosecutor. i would assume like in many organized crime cases sometimes you gotta make a deal with the devil to try to get someone further up the food chain i could take all some consternation from my prosecutors because in some cases we are asking them to prosecute people for war crimes and they're saying wait you want to prosecute the lieutenant at this level but we've let his colonel go which created this kind of paradox of guantanamo where if you were a big enough fish you potentially got a free ticket home and i wad of cash to take with you if you work you could potentially get prosecuted and if you're in that lower category the people who have been cleared you're still at guantanamo and definite attention so the more guilty you are may have been better for you. this is all to internationalize her hand for the babies become symbols. and women overcome huge risks to start families with
served most of his two year term so is eligible for release but bill maher zack from bahrain watch says only international pressure can force bahrain to change course the government will release him different only if there is significant pressure from behind allies meaning the united states or the united kingdom. in absence of that pressure i think the government will still trying to come in prison in line with their campaign of trying to prevent any sort of dissent or create any sort of sick space for dissent we saw in dealey videos of nighttime bombardments of villages in behind with tear gas these are areas where there's no protests whatsoever going on the government just comes in and fires massive amounts of tear gas to punish citizens for expressing dissent earlier protests so we're not seeing the use of tear gas in bahrain to disperse violent rioters as much as we're seeing it to punish as a weapon of collective punishment we've seen the government try to hold the

parliament and that seems to me is is the source of a lot of the frustration and tensions in countries a decision on whether to move ahead with the idea is expected in the new german drivers however have already made up their minds it will kill the joy of driving. i am against speed limit it will cost us jobs but all the while b. will not allow that to happen people will fall asleep at the speed the whole reason we built beautiful roads was to drive on them properly it's going to be a tough one for the e.u. to come to. germans that their speed should be in the hands of brussels down south so. i was dxed the germans live from the french or roast beef to the british. not things are they going to want to give up control of easily . control of a. penny. i'll be back with a nice team and move in just
a half an hour from now in the meantime the story of an army veteran who in his late forty's realised that he could no longer live in a man's body. one member of st petersburg's legislative assembly is trying to get child beauty pageants banned in russia starting with his hometown you know i couldn't agree more with this gent on this issue these kids beauty pageants not only put a ton of pressure on children to achieve something absolutely pointless but they're also a pedophile's dream come true and are well very very creepy but why are they creepy that's because with the i like it or not human beauty is related to sex so when you try to make children beautiful and wear bathing suits let's just say active poses
yet that's called sexualizing children and it's disgusting although adult beauty pageants are also sort of stupid at least the participants are all adults so see it because beauty pageants are obviously related to sexuality should be able to participate in them until you reach the age of consent in your country otherwise it is just a pedophile buffet but that's just my opinion. speak your language i mean some of the will or not at the end. will use programs and documentaries and so. banished matters to you breaking news a little turn to tip angles kidan stories. you hear. the spanish find out more visit.
there's one thing that i still can't understand what you mean i don't want to ruin your good mood but i have this one question what are you doing this all for. listen to me you had everything to respect authority he gave them all up and decided to go your way but what floor. it was a way to inform he tried to restrain himself and find his place in society in spite
of this disease. but look here first out anyway is that. your sort of not really puts me off that i have such a father. if the only of it was one small but very great secret that i have to live with. i am a transsexual woman as were news and now i'm going through a transition period the so-called homeowner will stage when i need to adjust to society as a woman that's why i need to change my sex and my possibles in a pretty simple there's been no surgery because you know no not yet it's very expensive and i don't have enough money with your money to the right amount. and with a name you already overdose in my passport people treat me as though i'm
a non-person i can't find a job as you don't even believe it's really my. i passed. you substantiate your claim with a number of medical reports could you present them to me so far you have only presented a medical report from professor clinic or so i thought that report would be enough i didn't think i'd need anything else if you refer to it as a medical statement than you need to have a document proving this clinic really is a magic oregon has ation authorized to issue such reports. i don't have such a document will you be able to present it yes i think so when will you be able to present it like concerned exact date i'll have to submit a request in five days ten how many about ten probably it's hard to say exactly the cases are joined to the ninth of september if the clinic refuses to
provide you with the necessary documents the court will sign an inquiry. didn't it surprise you that the clean you could go on to request from the group yes it did i don't know why they didn't reply it's so strange i can't comment i don't know what if i had the opportunity i would have done it myself what are you going to do next. we're going to call the clinic and the local registry office try to explain the situation because it's delaying the surgery.
